KITTY FROM KANSAS CITY (Harry Rose / Jesse Greer) Rudy Valleé & His Connecticut Yankees - 1931 Johnny Walker's Rollickers - 1931 Also recorded by: Gus Viseur & The Imperial Dance Orch. Her name was Kitty from Kansas City Sure was a pity she wasn't pretty She's not so hard to see She weighs two-forty-three I hope she doesn't get much fatter But if she does, that doesn't matter Kitty from Kansas City Now there's a girl that I adore She's so dumb, she doesn't know a thing Why, she thinks that July the Fourth is an English King I love her, I love her, that's easy to see It's Kansas City Kitty for me Well, she's so dumb, her brain is in a whirl Why, she thinks that Babe Ruth, is a chorus girl I love her, I love her, that's easy to see It's Kansas City Kitty for me! Well she's so dumb, she really is a dear Why she thinks that "Eli, Eli" is a college cheer I love her, I love her, that's easy to see It's Kansas City Kitty for me! Her name was Kitty, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty from Kansas City Sure was a pity she wasn't pretty Hey, Hey I love her just because She's not the girl she was She can cook, and she can wash But when she makes her love, Oh, Gosh! It's Kitty from Kansas City Now there's a girl that I adore She's so dumb, some times I almost cry Why, she thinks that Sing Sing is a lullaby I love her, I love her, that's easy to see It's Kansas City Kitty for me! Well, she's so dumb, it really is a shame, Why she thinks that Muscle Shoals is a boxer's name, I love her, I love her, that's easy to see, It's Kansas City Kitty for me! Well, she's so dumb, sometimes it almost kills, Why she thought Rudy Valleé was a place between two hills! I love her, I love her, that's easy to see It's Kansas City Kitty for me! Well she's so dumb, she gives me an awful cramp, Why she thinks that an Israelite is an electric lamp, I love her, I love her, that's easy to see** It's Kansas City Kitty for me! **For some reason, in the version by Johnny Walker's Rollickers (actually Ben Selvin's Band) sing this line as: I love her, I love her and I'm up a tree ******************** As performed by RUDY VALLEÉ in the 1931 Betty Boop cartoon film "Kitty From Kansas City": Her name was Kitty from Kansas City Sure was a pity she wasn't pretty She wasn't hard to see She weighed two-forty-three I hope she doesn't get much fatter But if she does, that doesn't matter Kitty from Kansas City Now there's a girl that I adore She's so dumb, she really is a dear Why, she thinks that Einstein is one glass of beer I love her, I love her, that's easy to see It's Kansas City Kitty for me! SPOKEN: Thought you folks might be interested in hearing the story about an old girlfriend of mine. Girl by the name of Kitty. Kitty's one of these girls, very attractive, gracious and charming, but, unfortunately, rather dumb. She came from some place out the Middle-West. Kansas City I think it was and we used to call her Kitty from Kansas City. Our old friend the bouncing ball will act as cheerleader. Are you all ready? Get set, here we go..... I have traveled everywhere in most every State I've met girlies here and there and I think they're great But there's one that pleased me and teased me and squeezed me Down old Missouri way Her name was Kitty from Kansas City Sure was a pity she wasn't pretty She wasn't hard to see She weighed two-forty-three I hope she doesn't get much fatter But if she does, that doesn't matter Kitty from Kansas City Now there's a girl that I adore She's so dumb, she always takes the prize Why, she thinks that Mussolini is an exercise I love her, I love her, that's easy to see It's Kansas City Kitty for me! She's so sweet, she really is my dove Why, she thinks that a mushroom is a place for making love I love her, I love her, that's easy to see It's Kansas City Kitty for me! Her name was Kitty, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty, Kitty from Kansas City Sure was a pity she wasn't pretty Hey, Hey I loved her just because She's not the girl she was She can cook, and she can wash But when she makes her love, oh gosh! It's Kitty from Kansas City, Now there's a girl that I adore She's so dumb, I think she is my doom Why, she thinks that no-man's-land is an old maid's room I love her, I love her, that's easy to see It's Kansas City Kitty for me! Well, she's so sweet, she btings me lots of joy Why, she thinks that a goblet is a sailor's little boy I love her, I love her, that's easy to see It's Kansas City Kitty for me! Well, she's so dumb, sometimes it almost kills Why she thought Rudy Valleé was a place between two hills I love her, I love her, that's easy to see It's Kansas City Kitty for me!
